Best Venue Company EVER

If I could give 10 starts I would!!! I can't recommend using catering by uptown enough. From the first visit and meeting with Anne, to the end of our wedding, CBU was top notch! We had to reschedule and replan through the COVID pandemic. I heard horror stories about other venues who were not working with couples, and really leaving them in the dark. This was the exact oppostie of what we experienced. They took time to answer all of my questions, worked with me on the guest list and changes and found a new date that worked for us. When I say it was perfect- our day truly was perfect. Cassidy was the absolute best planner, and day of coordinator EVER... seriously EVER!!! She and the whole staff were so helpful supportive and they ran the show! Look no further- you have found your perfect wedding venue- I can't thank the whole team at Catering by Uptown enough, especially Anne and Cassidy (who I worked with the most). You made our day the best ever! Love you all- thank you for EVERYTHING!!!!

The Coates' Juneteenth Wedding

I experienced the fairytale wedding of my dreams at Celebrations at the Bay. My account manager, Esther helped me stay on track, during the planning. The food was excellent, and my Day-of Coordinator, Verinica was like my fairy godmother in my fairytale. She went out of her way to make sure the timing, decor, and execution of everything that day was perfection. My guests have been reaching out to me and I was told, "that lady that was running the show had everything running like a well oiled machine." I didn't have a care in the world on that day because Ms. Veronica and her team executed with the highest degree of professionalism, coordination, and courtesy I've ever seen, and it was sprinkled with fairy dust to top it all off! The entire experience was so worth what we spent and I will recommend Celebrations to absolutely EVERYONE I know with upcoming weddings!
